Why are you taking these courses through NVOL?

I am taking my courses through DL because the teachers are extremely supportive and it is all self-paced.

What are the benefits of taking the courses online?

There are many benefits of taking courses online. The courses are all self-paced and although that sounds intimidating​ the teachers are available to help you make a plan and do the best you can.

What are some challenges that you face in OL? How do you overcome these challenges?

The biggest challenge that OL students are faced with is getting work done and staying on top of their school work. Overcoming this challenge is simple. Communicate with your DL teachers; they are not scary people. They are there to help and will sit down and make a plan with you and help you stick to it.

What has been your favourite learning activity in the courses so far?

My favourite activity that I have done in English 12 is one that I found the most useful--learning how to write proper essays with fun and small writing assignments.

Have you taken any DL courses before? If so, which ones?

I have completed many OL courses: EOEL 10, PE 10, English 11, Pre-Calculus 11, English 12. I will be completing Pre-Calculus 12 and Physics 12 online as well.

Would you take a DL course again?

Yes, I prefer doing my work self-paced and online.

Advice for any potential NVOL students?

The best piece of advice I can give is communicate with your teacher. They are there to help you succeed and finish the course. They will go above and beyond for you.
